CALL FOR PROJECT CONCEPTS GEF Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP) Projects (6th Operational Phase: 2015-2018)
The GEF Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP), implemented by the UNDP, provides financial and technical support to communities and CSOs to meet the overall objective of “global environmental benefits secured through community-based initiatives and actions”. SGP funds “small grants” up to a maximum of US$50,000, in addition, a “strategic project” provides funds up to a maximum of US$150,000. A 1:1 matching co-financing (cash and kind) is required. These “larger” small projects allow for scaling up and cover a large number of communities within a critical landscape or seascape. The GEF SGP has expanded to provide assistance to 132 countries. We believe that community-driven and civil society-led initiatives can generate environmental benefits, while supporting sustainable livelihoods, community resilience building and local empowerment. This is one of the most effective ways to address global environmental challenges. SGP Jamaica became a member in June 2003 and started financing projects in June 2005. Since then, GEF SGP Jamaica has succeeded in funding and providing support for more than 80 projects.
